Cereal treats are one of the easiest desserts of all time. They’re no bake, only take a few ingredients, and can be switched up in so many ways. I knew I wanted to add some to my recipe collection but I wasn’t sure where to start. 

Earlier this year I tried out some cookies made with Fruity Pebbles. I noticed them in the grocery store and realized that it was another item we didn’t have in Canada for the longest time. Shortly after, their counterpart made an appearance, Cocoa Pebbles. I decided those were the cereal I wanted to try out first. Personally, I love the texture of the classic rice cereal treats so these Cocoa Pebbles treats are pretty much just the chocolate version. I also added a chopped up chocolate bar to the recipe to up the chocolate even more. 

Ingredients

  • butter 
  • marshmallows
  • Cocoa Pebbles
  • dark chocolate

How to make Cocoa Pebbles Treats

  • use a larger saucepan than you need
  • use a silicone spatula for mixing and coat with butter 
  • add chocolate chips on top

If you’ve been making these since you were a kid like I have then you know it really doesn’t take much for them to come together. Melt your butter in a large saucepan. I find using a bigger pan than I need is really helpful because it allows more room to mix and it makes the whole process easier. Add the marshmallows and mix until completely melted, then remove from the heat. Next add your cereal and chopped chocolate and mix until evenly coated. Use a silicone spatula greased with butter for no mess mixing! Transfer mixture into your pan and press down until flat. Add some extra chocolate chips on the top for even more chocolate and to add a little to the aesthetics. I pushed mine into some of the open pockets.  

Ideally, let them cool for a little while before cutting and eating but if you want to have them right away I say go for it! Dig into your Cocoa Pebbles treats and enjoy!
